Wepoq-OVN, an L4 Gateway for Extended Endpoints- Gabe Beged-Dov, Prismod System, LLC

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

OVN includes multiple ways for external layer 2 and layer 3 workloads or endpoints to communicate with native Logical Switch Ports (LSP) on an OVN Logical Switch (LS). In this talk, I will describe a simple gateway design which enables external endpoints to efficiently connect to LS using their L4 address and appear to be native OVN LSP.

Some of the potential benefits of Wepoq-OVN include:

* ease of some dev and test scenarios by mapping L4 apps directly to LSP.
* higher port density on OVN transit node since netdev are not local.
* lighter weight endpoint creation in constrained or sandboxed environments, no need for --cap-add=NET_ADMIN to add ports.

Wepoq-OVN usage will be demonstrated in both the ovs-sandbox (dummy datapaths) and just-ovn-nodes (real datapaths) environments.
